This boutique hotel in Greece comes with its own private yacht

The 82-foot schooner is only the start of the luxury offerings at Kivotos Mykonos

When it comes to luxury stays, there are a few necessities that most hotels normally overlook, like a private beach, infinity pools and award-winning chefs that can cater to your ever need and want. Kivotos Mykonos has all of these things and a private yacht for guests to charter for trips around the island.

The 82-foot schooner is a replica of the 1812 vessel Prince de Neufchatel and, while it may look ancient (not to mention, like an actual pirate ship) it comes with every modern amenity and convenience you could wish for while on the open waves.

When you’re not exploring the crystal waters there is still plenty for you to enjoy at the hotel. Our favourite of their services is the NERO NERO private dining experience, where you and your partner are sat at a table just where the sea meets the sand. Feel the waves caress you feet as you enjoy a meal specially prepared by the hotel’s incredible chefs.

There is also the Del Mar Bar which allows you to swim up and enjoy cocktails as you gently dry off in the glorious Greek sun.

What more could you ask for from a boutique hotel? Oh, maybe a special, private VIP Check-In area. No wonder Kivotos can count the likes of Calvin Klein, Jean Paul Gaultier and Prince Albert II of Monaco in its gilded guestbook.
